Syria with a leadership like Assad doesn't want peace with Israel. Never will. He or any other dictator shouldn't be taken seriously. Just trying to scare Israelis by using words which hits directly the psychologically weak spots in decent and peace loving Israelis. Unfortunately, the leftists do believe and become frightened by his lofty words and lies. I believe the only ones to understand Assad's manipulative language is in reality Netanjahu and Lieberman, and of course that disturbs not only the leftists, but 'the whole world'.
